  1. Now here's a neat feature!

    February 1, 2008 (PC Advisor) Garmin Ltd. plans to launch a touch-screen mobile phone
    complete with Web browser and satellite navigation software.

    When docked in its vehicle mount, the GPS will automatically engage and the navigation
    menu will start up. The Nüvifone's hands-free feature will also kick in when the handset
    is placed in the cradle.

    Preloaded with maps of North America and eastern and western Europe, the
    Nüvifone will be Garmin's first device to include Google Local Search. Users will be
    able to search for locations by type, such as "coffee shops." Google Local Search
    sorts results based on the user's current location.

    The Nüvifone handset will feature a "Where am I?" feature that identifies the
    driver's current location on the map. The handset will also help drivers find where
    they parked their car by automatically marking the position it was in when the
    device was last removed from the car's handset cradle.
